this libyan government have the will and capacity to have the suspects involved and i think they have to strain the capacity to try to arrest powerful armed elements in the eastern part of the country and i don't know if they have it even if they have the will to use that capacity. can you tell us after the attack that they are trying to bring the culprits to justice, what do you think of the libyan government. >> you drew exactly the right description. is it well or capacity? what you need is both. i found the libyan officials to be willing, but without capacity. part of our challenge is to help them build greater capacity because it's about them. it's not only about what happened to us in benghazi which every official in the libyan government was deeply upset about, but they have their own problems now. they are having leaders attack and assassinated on a regular basis. we have to do more to build up the security capacity and i would ask this committee to work with us. there holds on a lot of the security funding that go to kwlab to assist them in building capacity. there those i kn
are the umbrella for so many other agencies in our government. if we were not there, many of those agencies representatives -- agencies' representatives would have a difficult time being there. we are the diplomatic presence that permits us to pursue law enforcement objectives, intelligence objectives, military objectives, and so much more. so it's not just about us sitting around and say, you know, do we really want our diplomats at risk? it's ok, what are the equities of the rest of the government that would be effective if we decided we had to close shop because the risk was too great? i want to stress that because i don't think you can understand, at least from my perspective, how difficult the calculation is without knowing that it's not just about the state department and usaid. secondly, i don't think we can retreat from these hard places. we have to harden our security presence but we can't retreat. we've got to be there. we've got to be picking up intelligence information, building relationships and if we had a whole table of some of our most experienced ambassadors sitting here to

knew more about libya than anybody else in our government did not see a direct threat of an attack of this nature and scale despite the overall trend of security problems that we faced. and i have to add, neither did the intelligence community. the arb makes that very clear. that the intelligence community also did not really zero in on the connection between the deteriorating threat environment in eastern libya and in benghazi. and a direct threat on our compound. so we have work to do. we have work to do inside the department. we have work to do with our partners and the d.o.d. and the intelligence community to constantly be taking in information, making sure it does get to the right people, that it isn't somehow stove piped or stalled. but that it does rise to decision makers. and i'm committed to improving every way that i can on what the arb told us to do on assessing our intelligence. and i think it's fair to say, congressman, that we have to do this now because i predict we're going to be as we saw in algeria seeing all kinds of asymmetric threats. not just to our government
of people up to that point. did you get an adequate explanation why help was not coming from our government and the president, and what's the rational decision, charlene lamb said they were watching it at the state department in real-time. >> i didn't get an adequate explanation and the question, if we have the battleships and air ships, if they're in germany. is that close enough to the middle east, should they be in italy, in north africa, should there be a military presence in libya if we have an embassy there? a lot of questions that were not fully answered a lot of questions that were incompletely answered and ultimately i think the biggest problem they tried to treat the embassy in libya like you would the embassy in paris and tried to say they're the same thing and they're not. one is in a war zone and should have been treated differently. i'm still fearful that in the future we could have another problem in libya or if syria gets a new government are we going to do the same thing and send an embassy to a new government in syria without adequate military protection, that's what i'm c
our government did not see a direct threat of an attack of this scale despite the trend of security problems we faced. i have to add, neither did the intelligence community. the a.r.b. makes that very clear that the intelligence community also did thought really zero in on the connection between the deteriorating threat environment in eastern libya and benghazi and a direct threat on our compound. we have work to do, to take in the information, making sure it gets to the right people and it isn't somehow stovepiped or stalled. that it does rise to decision-makers. i am committed to improving every way i can on what a.r.b. toll us to do on assessing our intelligence. i predict we will see all kind of threats not just to our government facilities but to private sector-facilities. in tunisia, although we protected our embassy, our school was badly damaged. we have to take a broader view. the a.r.b. gives us a start. it is not the whole story. >> thank you secretary clinton for yourto securing america's place in the world the past four years. and your contributions to world peace. the f
of the government. >> do you have any concept of the number of american troops it might have take ton actually create a totally secure environment for him in benghazi on september 10 and 11? >> no. the number of diplomatic security personnel requested in the cables is five. there were five there that night. with him. plus there was a mutual understanding with the annex that had a much more heavily armed presence because of the work they were doing in the region. it is very difficult to, in retrospect, to really anticipate what might have been. one of the r.s.o.'s who had served in libya said the kind of attack the compound suffered had not been anticipated. we had gotten used to preparing for car bombs and suicide bombings and things like that but this was of a different nature. and we even saw that at the annex, which was much more heavily fort fid, had much more heavy military equipment, we lost two of our best and had one of our diplomatic security officers badly injured. he's still at walter reed. so even the annex which had more assets in the face of the attack was suffering losses that n
.s. in the world. if there is a humanitarian crisis, it is justifiable to enter the country to stop the government from doing that. but if its is you are just unseating leaders because they're not friendly to u.s. business interests or you are replacing them with leaders who are firmly to u.s. business interests, that it does become imperialism. bowlines are really blurry and we have to watch our step. military industrial complex in this country is really powerful. i don't want it to spill over to the rest of the world and become the imperialists. host: a few tweets -- and joseph writes -- that is assessing the passed four years. i want to read from the oliver north peace that we mentioned earlier from the washington times, talking about hillary clinton and her assessment of her work. it says it has created opportunities for u.s. citizens in places that have benefited our nation. oliver north is the host of stories."ar mike is next on the republican line in indianapolis. caller: in the last four years, the only factor in the cap of hillary clinton is the miles she has trouble. a relationship to in
more memories i want to share. one deals with government and jazz. chris always wanted to work for the state department. he always wanted to be involved in the foreign service. he took the foreign service exam when we were undergrads at cal. he came back the first time, pleased with results on the written but felt he didn't do so well on the orals. the question that seemed to trip him up and left him perplexed was the following. mr. stevens, please compare american government and jazz music. chris told us he didn't quite know how to handle that question. my suggestion involved people blowing loudly on their horns or banging loud' on their drums was not terribly helpful. we decided to ask questions to trip up the applicant. we didn't have the internet to find a quick answer but figured it out. though chris may not have come up with the answer during that exam he certainly lived the message taught by this interesting comparison. both american democracy and jazz music involved ongoing experimentation. they involve unscripted action and improvisation as we figure out the best way t

government officially discriminates against women just because they're women. >> reporter: there appears to be one loophole. the decision gives the military until 2016 to speak special exceptions if they believe any positions must remain closed to women. >> it doesn't mean that women have access to all the positions that were previously closed off. we'll have to think about what that means in terms of our lawsuits. >> reporter: some combat positions may open to women as soon as this year. others, such as navy seal's, may take longer. >> they said, well, this job requires a lot of street and women can't hack it. well, guess what? a lot of men can't hack it either. >> reporter: in reality, women have found themselves in combat in recent wars. as of last year, 130 women have died and more than 800 women wounded in iraq and afghanistan. reporting live in san francisco, rob roth, ktvu channel 2 news. >>> meantime, president obama's nominee to be the next secretary of defense met today at the white house with the leaders of several influential american jewish groups. several have criticized ch

be respectful to secretary clinton. but it will go beyond politics. did the government do enough to protect their citizens? did the state department ignore social security concerns? what are survivors telling investigators, and what's being done to track down the terrorist that laid siege on these offices. it's likely to be a day of blunt questions and intense scrutiny, wolf blitzer is in washington to begin our coverage. >>> good morning, it will be a very important day for the secretary of state this morning. she has a big challenge ahead of her. she has to convince not only men members of the senate, but later the house that she is on top of what happened, why four diplomats were killed, she has to explain what she was doing on that very day. jake tapper is our chief correspondent. it's one of those hearings that we're interested in seeing how tough the questions will wind up being. >> that's right, for secretary of state hillary clinton this is the losing time of her tenure. she'll be leaving in the next few days. this is a rather uncomfortable swan song for her. also, we have some new
be part of the equation. we must figure out ways to stop these attacks before the government shows up in the parking lot. that can't be our only goal. and in closing, train to i ask that you continue to work towards a complete and comprehensive approach to the prom. i appreciate your peace in "the wall street journal" yesterday, highlighting mental-health services in addition to gun control policies. and i will conclude by reminding us three core elements must be part of the solution. expansion of mental health and prevention services, secondly, strengthening and expanding school counseling services and school resource officers, and thirdly, promoting and supporting, engaging in nurturing school climate, not one that is punitive and pushing kids out of school. we must stop suspending kids out of school. when all of us were in school, we rarely saw did kids get suspended. we almost never saw anyone get expelled and now it's a very common phenomenon. we've got to keep our arms around his kids and embrace them so they are engaged and connected to our society. thank you for your invitatio
, the situation room, and elsewhere showing that within hours of this attack our government had evidence al sharia was taking credit for the attack. she knew that they had claimed credit for it and that contradicts what she said under oath today. >> bill: cammeron, wrap it up for us. >> the republican members on the panel didn't challenge her on the assertion that the problem was lack of funds for the embassy security. when there are -- it is at least debatable if not demonstrably false that fnszing of the facility was not the problem that led to the security breakdown. let's face it your 2016 rhetoric is stone cold dawn on this. it's not coincidence all the buzz with joe biden having met with folks at new hampshire concealed over the weekend and released the day that hillary clinton is testifying the before congress. >> bill: already competing. what are the odds of that? >> zero to 100. >> bill: by the way, rosen is the author of the book "the strong man," john mitchell the secrets of watergate. >> bill: colonel peters react to hillary clinton's testimony. sending jirt jets to egypt is that smart
to maintain his relevancy and have a shelf life on this party, that he needs to join the government. he needs to exercise the kind of power and influence that is required to service and fulfill his agenda. >> he has a lot of different ideas to benjamin netanyahu, doesn't he? >> he does, clearly, but remember, benjamin netanyahu is the master of the israeli economy which has done quite well although they're now facing serious austerity concerns and are going to have to impose some of them on the public. on the peace issue, i think there's actually quite a lot of consensus between lapid and netanyahu, both support, nominally, a two state situation. like netanyahu and his father, tommy lapid, he's against the division of jerusalem. so i wouldn't hold my breath that whatever israeli government that emerges is going to be able to take major decisions on the israel yanl palestinian decisions because it's going to be a broader government. it's on the rule of the orthodox, national service, socioeconomic issues and perhaps on iran. >> a lot of people think that the center in israel, it's really much

[ laughter ] >> i am feeling much better now. it's going to be an interesting weekend. could see some showers but i think the big story will be the cold temperatures. it's going to be chilly as we head into the weekend and the cold storm plunges into the bay area. it looks like leftover showers outside our hi-def doppler picking up on that not a whole lot but you can see a couple of pop-up showers now in toward the livermore valley a few light showers. so if you are stepping outside, don't be surprised if you need the windshield wiper ever so briefly this morning. we have a couple systems. one is going to push in later
research and could be located at a sanctuary. linda brent created it after working with government chimps at laboratory. >> it bothered you. >> sure, sure. that's what spurs people on the do great things, and so i think that's very true for me. >> reporter: the 200-acre sanctuary gives the chimps their first chance to live outside cages. >> we want to give the chimpanzees opportunities to have like they would if they were in africa. to be able to replicate those kinds of environmentals and behaviors, you have to give them space, you have to give them opportunities, and you have to give them an opportunity to have a lot of social partners. >> reporter: chimpanzees have been used in the u.s. labs since the 1920s. they've been important for the development of vaccines and understanding diseases including hepatitis and aids. but advances in computer and lab technologies make large numbers of chimps unnecessary. just 50 could be kept for the possibility of newe research. >> you have a lot of feelings for your the chimps. what do you want them to have? >> i want them to have the freedom of choi
through the tour. why is it more patriotic to spend 60% of your income and give it to the government? >> i don't get it. i don't know why he didn't stand up. there is no mulligans in golf. you don't get to move the ball if you have a bad shot. his first inclination was to tell people this is getting prohibitive for me to live here. then he backtracked on it i guess because he's getting some flak. if people don't stand up and tell -- if the .001% aren't willing to stand up and say this hurts then the 99% aren't going to staepbd the effect it has on -- aren't going to staepbd understand the effect it has on people. the high earners in california should be the poster boys. they should be jerry brown's biggest advocates. instead people like me are saying look, i don't want to leave california. i've lived there 22 years. i loved it there. my family was there, my home, my friends. i am now leaving and complaining about it. so rather than being a poster child, a poster boy and being an advocate of california, i'm actually saying i've got to leave. and now phil's backtracking when we all know, i g
, at that meeting, did this issue come up with regards to the inability of the libyan government to protect our diplomatic institutions? did that issue come up at all in that conversation? >> well, we, obviously, talked about a great deal about the deteriorating threat environment in libya. you know, when i landed in tripoli, i was met by the zintan militia. that was the welcome i had. all these guys, dressed completely in black, holding their automatic weapons. that was my welcoming party. >> rubio told fox news last night, time will tell whether some of the things she said will bear out to be true or not. these things have a way of flushing themselves out. overall, clinton's political strengths were clearly on display. she was prepared, tough when she needed to be, deferential when she wanted to be, and she displayed both raw emotion and a sense of humor. it's also worth noting that she's stronger today, politically, than she was four years ago. consider, she's leaving office with the highest approval ratings of her political career, 67%, according to a "washington post"/abc poll. we had her
and family background. i look forward to watching libya develop equally strong institutions of government. education and healthcare are just two of the many areas where i see opportunities for close partnership between the united states and libya. i look forward to exploring those as we work together to build a free democratic prosperous libya. see you soon. >>> good afternoon, everyone. i'm an san francisco mayor ed lee. i want to welcome you from the bay area, from all over the country to san francisco's city hall. today we honor and celebrate ambassador john christopher stevens in this civic celebration of his life. i thank the stevens family for hosting this celebration here. amongst his many friends, his family, his colleagues from around the world who continue to reremember and celebrate his distinguished life and sacrifice he made for all of us. while we have lost a true hero to our nation, his accomplishments and generosity lives on in all the places he that served, promoting mutual respect and cooperation in international relationships. ambassador stevens is an inspiration to all
